International Student Counselor

We know that it is important for our international students to receive personalized academic advising.  When you arrive on campus, our International Student Counselor will work with you throughout your studies.  The Counselor will assist you in choosing classes, answering questions about specific majors and with the university transfer questions that you may have.
In addition, you will work with a Faculty Advisor that is assigned to your specific major.  These faculty members are there to answer your specific questions regarding the major, career opportunities and your university choices.
Our goal is to help you reach your educational goals!
